Liverpool offered a hell of a fortune to recruit Federico Valverde

What’s next after this ad

On August 28, faced with the incredible shortcomings of his team, Jürgen Klopp admitted he was wrong. « I know we’ve had this discussion since it all started and it was me who said we didn’t need a midfielder and I was wrong. This is the situation. But the specific point does not change – we will do something, but it has to be the right one. We’ll see. »

Three days later, the Reds coach tried to strengthen his midfield. And not with anyone. AS reveals that the Mersey club approached Real Madrid by making an XXL offer for Federico Valverde. The English have thus offered 100 M€ for the player bought from Peñarol in 2016 against 5 M€.

Selling Valverde out of the question

After letting Casemiro slip away to Manchester United for more than €80 million, Casa Blanca could have cashed a second very big check. But the people of Madrid politely refused the Liverpool offer. Because in Madrid, Valverde’s place in Carlo Ancelotti’s team is invaluable. Instead, the Reds brought in Arthur on a loan with an option to buy.

With Eduardo Camavinga and Aurélien Tchouameni, the Uruguayan is one of three young midfielders destined to replace the magic trio Casemiro-Modric-Kroos in the medium term. Better, the South American can even help out a notch higher. An interesting progression that has made him a highly valued member of the most successful club on the European continent.
